Advice dating friends ex
So if you’re asking ‘should I stay friends with my ex’?
Staying friends after a relationship ends shouldn’t even be a consideration until you’ve given it space. In fact, unless you’re meeting each other with new romantic partners in tow, alcohol is a tremendous risk factor.
Emotions aren’t switches that get flipped on and off.
The old saying is that it takes half the length of the relationship to get over the relationship.
So often times, either as a way to soften the blow or out of sincere feelings of warmth, we commit to staying friends after a relationship ends. I like having her in my life, so we should stop being romantic and just keep the friend part.’ Sounds good on paper, sure, but that’s not usually how it goes.
One night you’re out as friends, you have a couple of drinks, somebody leans in too close, and BAM! Only this situation is much more confusing, hurtful, and sad.
